Students dressed up as their favorite book character on Friday, October 31st to celebrate Red Ribbon Week and Book Fair at Mossy Head School! Around each student's neck was a sign with a vocabulary word describing their favorite book character. Students discussed the meaning of their word and its relation to the book with their classmates. So much learning and fun too!

Fire Safety Week at MHS

October 21, 2014

Mossy Head Students Learn about Fire Prevention and Safety

Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and First Grade students at Mossy Head School learned about ways to prevent fires and practice fire safety first hand from the Mossy Head Fire Department. Students enjoyed learning about the fire equipment, fire safety gear, and fire safety tips! Students even got to investigate the inside of an EMS truck. Students walked away with their own fire hat and a goody bag full of Fire Safety learning material.
